Will Cavs survive?

They look overmatched.

Did Boston just hold home court or are the Cavs in trouble? What are their current issues?

After LeBron and Love, they

After LeBron and Love, they apparently don't have very good players. Korver and Green are playing hard and pretty well. But Smith and Thompson look like classic cases of guys who just got satisfied with their accomplishments and with being very, very rich.

Then, the new young guys -- Clarkson, Nance, Hood -- have done nothing. I would have sworn these were all really good young players, who could contribute to a championship team. But apparently none of them are ready for playoff basketball.

We know George Hill can lead a team deep into the playoffs. He seems like he's not totally healthy?

That's about it. One guy is playing with mind-blowing greatness, one guy is playing really well and two guys are hustling. But they've got nothing else right now.

I wouldn't be shocked if they tie the series at home. The way LeBron is going, they may only need one other guy to find himself, step up and take some of the pressure off.

The Cavs need Lebron to play

The Cavs need Lebron to play as close to 48mins as possible, they will likely need him to score 40- 50, rebound and distribute to the point of triple double while he defends their best wing player. They also need his teammates to shoot over 40% from 3 in every game. Without all of this, they are done.

Many people got on the bandwagon and supported the mid season moves. They were clearly underwhelming. Hill was terrible in Sacramento and Hood was worse in Utah. The Lakers are a lottery team and it didnt make a difference whether Clarkson or Nance were there or not. That speaks volumes.

Quite honestly, LeBron has had his best season and he is the only reason they were not bounced by Indiana in the first round. Ill be shocked if they beat Boston let alone win the Finals, and even more shocked if LeBron stays there next year. The only thing the Cavs have going for them is the Brooklyn pick. They should trade KLove and blow everything up at the end of the year. They should sack Ty Lue as well.

Clarkson

Lakers fans thought we were crazy when we used to say that Clarkson was a good player on a very bad team, but would only be a ok role player on a good team.

I remember Lakers fans saying

I remember Lakers fans saying they'd rather have Clarkson then Smart after their rookie season. Obviously Clarkson put up nice numbers but Smart was and is a more impactful player dispite his flaws.

Lebrons defense has been pretty bad this series

Do you think he is really playing at a all time greatness level? Stats dont always show defensive effort or sharing the ball enough for guys to get into a rythm.

Hoods Attitude

There is a reason Utah was so happy to move Hood.

You cant be throwing tantrums about playing time in the playoffs.

Before we bury the cavs and

Before we bury the cavs and lebron lets remember that Boston has one road game so far the entire playoffs (barely). This series is far from over imo. If Cleveland gets two at home they are right back in the drivers seat imo. And if this does make it to seven games, there is absolutely no way I’m picking against lebron, home court advantage or not.

If we're going to use the

If we're going to use the past as a bulletproof argument, then we should also point out that Boston is undefeated at home in the playoffs and will win in 7 because they have home court advantage.

Celtics was best road team in the NBA

Sixers and Mikwaukee were pretty good teams. Better than Cavs. Series is not over I said Celtics in 6 but honestly watch the film. King James D is at all time low. Jaylen Brown is his man and he is scoring easy.
